Divya Prerna Foundation (DPF) is a Registered Charitable Trust, formed on 15th July 2011, with the objective of realization of the divinity in man, by promoting the path of Divya Prerna (DP) or “Divine Inspiration” in the society. DP requires nature sustaining living in harmony, apart from enrichment of body, mind & intellect to seek spiritual enlightenment.

At present, the planned projects of DPF are – promoting Nature Sustainable living by setting up Solar Lighting Systems in public access locations like schools, temples etc, Publications of booklets on “Great Masters”and “ Eternal Truths” for free distribution to youth, and Non-formal education for rural children, by organizing science camps.

The solar system lights up the front yard & the prakarams of the shrine, with a special chandelier for the Sanctum.

In the same function, solar lanterns were presented to 10 students of the Pughazhendhi Pulavar Govt Higher Secondary School, of the same village. Led by Shri Chinnamani, the Headmaster of the school, 10 children (5 each from 10th & 12th class - both girls & boys) received the lanterns. The portable lanterns are to be charged in the solar system of the school, provided by DPF, during school hours & carried back home to light the home for about 4 hours in the night, helping them to study irrespective of the EB power.
